About this title

Synopsis:

Social Work experts Brenda DuBois and Karla Miley provide a discipline-oriented approach to social work in Social Work: An Empowering Profession, Fifth Edition. This book integrates the CSWE foundational content areas and the contemporary themes of empowerment, strengths, and social justice and fully incorporates the strengths or empowerment perspective. This new edition now includes the full text of the International Federation of Social Workers Code of Ethics, The Ethics of Social Work: Principles and Standards. This book offers readers a strong generalist eco-systems approach while examining values and ethics, cultural diversity, social justice, social work practice, human behavior, populations at risk, and policy and services. The authors detail the roles of the social worker in the functions of consultation, resource management, and education and present an easy-to-understand paradigm that shows entry-level human service professionals how the partnership between practitioners and consumers takes place at all systems levels.

“...a good text for MSW courses at the introductory level, and a good text for BSW courses in which the instructor pushes his/her students and challenges them to read, comprehend, and think!”
-David A. Iacono-Harris, Ph.D., Western Illinois University

“...the chapters are certainly well written, clear, and current ... The text's focus on empowerment, social justice, and systems theory were deciding factors in my adoption decision. This text addresses these topics in a way that is very consistent with current emphases in social work education and within the profession itself, providing an excellent foundation for students.”
-Alice W. Sewell, Ph.D., Millersville University

“"This text does an excellent job of introducing students to the profession of social work and its relationship to the social welfare system. ...The chapters effectively engage students by beginning with a narrative about a social worker or client system, which places the chapter topic in a real life context.”
-Salome Raheim, University of Iowa
